Four Reasons Big Four = Bottom Four

The "Big Four" has a nice ring to it. It's a useful term to describe the four ACC schools in North Carolina. Their athletic traditions are tied intimately to each other, and to the league they helped create more than a half-century ago. During football season, however, "Big Four" has proven to be a misnomer. Statistically speaking, Duke and Wake Forest are two of the worst teams in Division I-A history. N.C. State hasn't captured the ACC gridiron title since 1979, UNC since 1980.
